Paella is a traditional Spanish dish that cooks in one pan. This version with chicken and chorizo is delicious and hearty enough to serve while entertaining.


Make It

Step 1

Season chicken with paprika, salt and pepper.

Step 2

Heat oil in 15-inch paella pan or very large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chorizo to pan; cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 3

Add chicken to pan; cook, turning with tongs to cook all sides, for about 5 minutes. Transfer to bowl with chorizo.

Step 4

Add onion, tomato and garlic to pan; cook, stirring frequently, for 6 minutes or until onion is soft. Add 3 cups water, saffron mixture, melted fruit bar, wine and bouillon; bring to a boil over high heat. Sprinkle in rice, distributing evenly with spoon; top with bell peppers. Reduce heat to low; cover. Cook, without stirring, for 15 to 20 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed.

Step 5

Add chicken and chorizo mixture, peas and remaining ¼ cup water. Cover; cook for 5 minutes or until rice has absorbed all liquid. Increase heat to high; cook for 30 seconds to toast/brown the rice on the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat, cover with foil and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in parsley before serving.
